Intelligent edge for sustainable agriculture - Phase II

URN C23.0.504
Topics 5G, Edge computing, Network slicing

Smart weeding shows a reduction of up to 20% in chemicals used. Smart irrigation shows a reduction of up to 30% of water used.

The agriculture industry faces challenges like climate change, water scarcity, and productivity. Precision agriculture can help with these challenges, but it's expensive and difficult to implement. The Catalyst project will develop an open, flexible, portable, consistent, secure, sustainable, scalable, composable, and commercially viable blueprint and reference implementation for delivering 5G network slicing, MEC orchestration, and sustainability services for precision agriculture. The blueprint will define the architecture and components of the system, while the reference implementation will provide a concrete example of how the system can be deployed. The system will be tailored to specific precision operations including smart weeding, smart irrigation, and animal health management. It will also provide transparency of the impact on sustainable development goals (SDGs). A primary goal of the project is to make it easy for AgTech solution providers to onboard products and applications (e.g., smart sensors, farm management) into a marketplace using an underlying transparent architecture that can deliver high-value outcomes to farmers. This will enable connected value chains to be built between farm operators, equipment manufacturers, distributors, agronomists, and retailers.
